The NES is coming back! Is it something you should be excited about though? Well, its a smaller replica of the NES Classic Edition which sold approximately 61 million units globally!

The new NES will come with 30 preinstalled games and will feature the retro NES controller! Personally, I’m super excited about this little guy’s arrival in Canada! The NES will launch on November 11th for $59.99 USD and $79.99 CAD. You will be able to purchase extra controllers for an extra $12.99.
